The Lone Guitar

A street entertainer plays his guitar on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork last month during the WW photowalk on the 18th. I have the winners of the hotel rooms for next month’s photowalk. I picked them with the help of Alexa, Laughing Lion and Andrea who picked the first distinct numbers between 1 and 5. Thanks […]

Reflection on Half Moon Street

Construction work on the new block on Half Moon Street, Cork nears completion and reflects the brightly lit houses on the far side of the River Lee and the looming grey storm clouds. This shot’s for Richard who commented on a shot taken the other direction last week. PS. entries are still being accepted for […]

The Pillars of Justice

The limestone steps and pillars at the front of the Court House in Cork make for an imposing building. Never been in there though. Guess they wouldn’t be too happy with a photographer prowling around? I’ll have to bring a sketch pad.

No Shandon Bells from Academy Street

No Shandon Bells from Academy Street

The bell tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon may well be one of the most recognisable sights in Cork but it’s no longer visible down Academy Street and as a consequence, possibly from Patrick Street either. Back in 2007 I snapped this photo of the tower and it’s well I did because the construction […]

The 8A Bus

A man gets on the 8A bus to Curraheen on Patrick Street, Cork last Saturday. This was on the way to the photowalk, walking up the street with Chris to where Will had double parked because he was driving home again. Chris had dropped his camera in the car when he got out!

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you […]

Emma

Emma, a small alley somewhere in San Francisco. Shot three years ago while on a photowalk around the city. Only 9 places left for the photowalk tomorrow. I emailed everyone today. Did you get your email?
